finding the stillness within ...

Discover a community of radical acceptance, connected by the practices and teachings of mindfulness. We all need deep connections right now — to ourselves, to each other, and to what matters.

Want to learn something new? Interested in starting or expanding a mindfulness or meditation practice? Ready to connect to life and others with heart?

Have an iBme online program experience this summer — it's much more than just staring at a screen.
